As the national library of the UK, the British Library (BL), like all libraries, has the responsibility of storing (preserving) its collections while making them accessible to everyone. The BL faces a significant challenge with storage space predicted to run out within the next three years. However, alongside a plan to create additional capacity, the BL also intends to take the opportunity to rethink the integration of storage and workflows in order to implement a fully optimised end-to-end model of content management. This approach will incorporate not only storage and workflow design and integration, but also the physical environments and facilities for staff and users.
